the othe obama administration announcing it will send four high tech fighter jets to egypt even though that country is in militant hands and of course hillary clinton's testimony about libya. here to run it all down for us colonel ralph peters joins us from washington. what's the headline of the hillary clinton testimony today for you. >> hillary mops floor with congressman and senators. she was as james rosen pointed out. she was prepared. she had it down. she had answers anticipatory answers ready. the congressman and senators didn't do their homework. they made speeches again as james rosen pointed out. their questions were ill focused. they went down the red herring road. they needed to ask hillary, why when it went down, if shes would was aware there was an attack, why she didn't immediate qulatly ask ask for urgent military help. they needed to ask her specifically who and when denied the request from libya for greater embassy security. they needed -- i would have asked her this question. were you asked, madam secretary, to go on the sunday talk shows before susan rice was asked
. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th, so we need to reenforce the ability of these governments to protect our embassies and consulates in 275 different locations around the world. >> well, that raises a point, michael lighter, if we should be in 275 locations. we don't want to retreat from the world, but basically according to the review board that admiral mullen and pickering went through, they looked through the videos and say this host government local militia just turned tail and ran before the attack, or as the attack, was taking place. >> i think what we saw in libya was a slowness on behalf of the state department to adjust to very, very different circumstances in libya. and during the
he biggest question facing the obama administration. >> i want to take one for the team and ask a big question. did the president know she was lip syncing and does he care? >> i have not had the discussion with him. i don't know that i understand the variety and contradictory reports on the matter and i would refer you to j-sick or pick. >> jennifer: that refers to the committees that organize the inauguration. bill press did follow up with a more pointed question, and jay carney danced around it and similar questions from other reporters. unfortunately we may never know what happened on that stage with beyonce and whether she lip synced. check us out on line at current.com/thewarroom website. thanks so you all joining us here in "the war room." >> cenk: welcome to "the young turks." we have a great show ahead for you tonight. secretary of state hillary clinton went up the hill and the republicans were aggressive and hot style. get a look. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables fr
also e-mail us. we're asking you this morning your advice for the second obama administration. isedobama speech rate stark choices, says the new york times. we would like to hear from you this morning, what you think republican options are and what your advice is. here's what's happening on capitol hill today. house gop poised to extend the debt limit. that's the headline in "usa today." the bill would buy time and would set the stage for a physical fight. house republicans are scheduled to vote today to extend a $16.40 trillion at the opening salvo in a renewed battle this year to pass a federal budget and reduce the debt. the headline in the washington times, the front page looks like this -- the reporter on that story and joins us now from the "washington times. good morning and thanks for being with us. guest: thanks for having me. host: when do we expect the vote and why is it significant? guest: because we are fresh off the president's inauguration, it is significant. the fight over the debt ceiling in many ways has defined the last two years as far as spending, because
end of the campaign and republicans keep making accusations against the obama administration, they tried to paint a positive picture of the decimation of al qaeda for political reasons rather than sharing the specific information that they had. on one of those five sunday talk shows you were filling in and you had susan rice appear before your show. do you remember how she responded? this was five days after the attack in benghazi. >> well, first of all, i remember we were all requesting secretary of state hillary clinton because it was under her purview just in terms of booking but that's not who the white house put out. the white house controls they. they control this process of sunday shows and guests with an iron hand. >> were you surprised when susan rice was the designee? >> yes, because as president obama said later, she really had nothing to do with security decisions in benghazi or libya at large. she's the ambassador to the united nations. i didn't know what she was doing there other than that she was a high level and came armed at that point that this was not the r
a more earnest push for peace-making with the palestinians. the obama administration is equipping egypt with state-of-the-art weaponry despite the government's open hostility toward israel. shannon bream are telling us what you are spending the equipagess now. >> four american f-16 fighter jets are in egypt as a foreign age pact that some republican lawmakers believe should be reconsidered. in light of history of anti-semitic remarks by mohammed morsi. former head of the muslim brotherhood. >> we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred toward the jews. and all those who support them. >> morsi mocked president obama after his 2009 cairo speech. >> he uttered many lives he couldn't have fulfilled a single word even if he were sincere, which he is not. >> the military aid package part of a deal struck with then egyptian president hosni mubarak in 2010 includes 16 f-16 and 200 tanks. some member of congress fear egypt islamist leder could use the weapons against israel. >> i am scared to death, that israelis that i have met as i have been around the country there.
later disavowed by the obama administration as self-evidently untrue. >> so, and we did not -- i think accurate, sir, i certainly did not know of any reports that contradicted the ic talking points at the time that ambassador rice went on the tv shows. >> reporter: yet such reports were circulating in clinton's own department and at the national security council where she sits well before rice's sunday show tour. fox news has published internal state department e-mails that noted on 9/11 a claim of responsibility for the benghazi attacks by the terrorist group ansar al-sharia. those e-mails were sent to the nfc, the pentagon and to the white house situation room. jon? jon: interesting. james rosen in washington, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. >> well, a mix of brutal cold and dangerous flames for firefighters in chicago battling one of the city's largest fires in year. just when it seemed like they had it under control, there are signs that the fire is rekindling. we'll have the very latest. >>> and millions of americans dealing with these dangerous cold temperatures. the doctor is
." tonight we're raising very serious questions about the obama administration's decision to hand over some of our most deadly military weapons to egypt. now, particularly given the nation's ties to anti-terrorist groups like the muslim brotherhood, and how idiotic the proposal is to give away f-16's and 200 tanks to a company led by a 9/11 truther like mohammed morsi. we have retired air force, tom mcinerney and a fox newt contributor, liz cheney. liz, i know you know this region very, very well. i know the argument was there were more moderate people in the military, but they've been replaced by supporters of mohammed morsi, so, i know -- what is the reason, tell me the motivation here knowing that this is going to put israel at risk. >> you know, i can't, i can't imagine what the motivation is, sean, you have a situation where the gift of these f-16's was approved back in 2010, when you had a very different set of circumstances. the egyptian military underhosni mubarak had in fact been an important ally of the united states. i think that the egyptian military still has the potential to b
their children. >> republican lawmakers have been fiercely critical, of course, of the obama administration's response to the attack in benghazi. then secretary clinton got a little fired up during some of the testimony. >> do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened wouldn't have ascertained immediately that there was no protests? i mean, that was -- that was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained. >> well, but senator -- >> within hours if not days. >> senator, i -- you know, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. >> i realize that -- >> number one. number two. >> i realize that's a good excuse. >> no, it's a fact. number two, i would recommend highly you read both what the ard said about it and the classified ard because even today there are questions being raised. now we have no doubt that they were terrorists, they were militants. they attacked us, they killed our people but what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing. >>
state of the obama administration's response to the attack. four months later, the administration still cannot or will not name the terrorist groups responsible for the attacks or the names of these group leaders. four months later, despite constant video footage that many members of congress have seen and many eyewitnesses, not a single benghazi terrorist suspect is in custody. four months later, the unfinished business has had access to only one suspect, ali, for just three hours and the tunisian government kept the f.b.i. team waiting for more than five weeks -- five weeks when they were finally granted access. four months later, the administration still has not discussed the serious between the groups behind the benghazi attack and the leaders of the attack on the u.s. embassies in cairo, tunis the same week of september 11. four months later, following the pickering report on state department failures leading up to the attack, not a single state department employee has been fired and held responsible for their role in denying adequate security for the consulate in benghazi. four mo
the obama administration handled the benghazi attack and the susan rice explanation but he just was crisp. he made his point. lot of shots. asked questions. overdue giving a speech. the reason that i think johnson got under her skin is when you keep asking her about the susan rice talking points, that's why she didn't -- i think that's why she erupted. it is not as if she had not by that point explained it had been covered. rand paul saying you should have been fired and all of that. that is not as constructive a questioning as find out something new, senator. you have -- you have in the hot seat. ask a question. if you think she's going to be on the job or they're hiding something, ask a question that will bring out a new fact. >> bill: yeah. here's rand paul with his -- two things he says here. number one, i would have fired you. before that, talking about equating this to 9-11. pipsqueak paul. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9-11. and i really mean that. and i've been pre
away when the obama administration was new and they're back and it's a better voucher program. and many more kids in private that opted out. >> megyn: and what about the poor kids stuck back in the public schools? >> indeed. stories like this about curriculum changes are troubling. and certainly i would be for good evening government and civics just like algebra and i don't know, shakespeare in high school and a lot of other things. >> megyn: it's in the nation's capital, it's the irony. >> it should be be everywhere, but there is also a point to be made, another level of a school choice model where different kinds of schools can form different kinds of curricula can be provided for schools that want-- kids want focus on science and math, dramatic arts or vocational skills. >> megyn: focus right. but i believe in home schooling, i believe in having parents having choice and so, if different schools form and that i may not agree with, whatever they are, i still support the parents' right to pick alternate schools. >> megyn: isn't there a basic agreement even though you do home schooling,
. mrs. clinton, the state department, and the obama administration don't care about the truth for her to say what difference does it make. the difference, whether it was a disorganized mob or an assault on that compound, and whether or not the truth was told is of profound interest to the american people. >>brian: your former job was getting to the truth. people are focused on the fact that she lost her temper but they're not looking it the words she said. what difference does it make? the we don't know what happened still today. >> her losing her temper wasn't a lost temper. it was either planned or it was controlled. and it served, to use one of your phrases, a brush-back pitch. the republicans did not examine her with enough aggression, with enough professionalism. they should have zeroed in with follow-up questions. they should have cross-examined her as if she was on the witness stand. the democrats, as bill o'reilly said last night, not a single democrat asked a single question that made any sense or challenged her. >>brian: tell me what you think of this from senator mccain and
or hillary clinton or president obama, or any one of them in the administration is to mislead, to actively try to prevent false facts about what happened in benghazi. and no one has ever come close to suggesting any kind of motive. >> no, i think that is absolutely right. hillary clinton demonstrated what a professional she is by saying she absolutely takes responsibility. and with the review board's work, she has gone to sort of look through this question of what ought to be a direct reporting of crises up to the secretary level. but also what has not received as much attention, she is warning there are other facilities out there today. very true on the day the tragedy occurred. people died, ambassador stevens and three other great americans died in this conflict. and we today have under-resourced defenses for other facilities. and she said we need to fix this. and those members of the gop who were launching the attacks on her, some of them have been part of the process of trying to undermine diplomacy of the state department for years. and this is time to actually step up and resource th
the administration clarified repeatedly. >> megyn: you're talking about the dni written memo. >> what. >> megyn: the written memo out of dni. >> they admitted it and secretary clinton and barack obama have all been clear there was not a protest and that this had happened. >> megyn: where was the press conference where they got to be questioned about it and come clean and back and forth with the press corps. that didn't happen because we were in the middle of at presidential election. >> and megyn, i think as secretary clinton said this has been settled. and senator johnson as john kerry pointed out today didn't know what happened he skipped the intelligence briefing that would have actually given him the answers that he was looking for yesterday. >> megyn: all right, give you the quick final word, mark. >> sure, i used to write these statements at the white house and what you say is, look, we don't know exactly what happened, there are some reports that say it was a protest and other reports is a that say otherwise, here is what we know right now and as we get more details we'll tell you if the
